Hurricane Felix struck tiny Nicaragua with a devastating speed, uprooting trees, smashing boats and throwing life out of gear. Death toll has risen to 38 with more than 200 persons missing in the awry of storm.

This is hurricane season in the Atlantic. Warmer temperatures in and around the coasts call for devastation in this time of the year. However, this year has seen more recurrent, frequent and intense storms hit the Atlantic coast, particularly the Gulf, bringing life at a standstill. Hurricane Felix comes after Dean dismantled Gulf coast, devastating Jamaica and surroundings.

Hurricanes are the result of difference between sea-surface temperature and the surroundings, once the temperature rises, the pressure differences lead to storm formation over the ocean and the coasts. Floating dead bodies, uprooted trees, bundled houses, dismantled landscape, pounding rain, flooding are the damages that hurricanes wreak. The story of Nicaragua is no lesser hazardous than Jamaica and Mexico that earlier suffered from Hurricane Dean.

Frequent and intense hurricanes, storms have become a recurrence these days, leading us to question, whether this is the result of warming of the planet because of rising temperatures? The relation seems concomitant.
